The Upper Cumberland Regional Health Facility project arose from the need for a larger space that would accommodate the recent and projected growth of the regional health department. The program was divided into four essential functions: administrative spaces, a conference center, a clinic and general building services. The goals were to provide a healthier indoor environment with access to natural daylight and views, emit fewer CO2 emissions, utilize local vendors and specify products with high recycled content, reduce stormwater runoff to prevent contamination of local waterways, and lower monthly utility bills. These design goals were based on the desire to establish a healthy, productive and environmentally responsible, functional, low-maintenance work place based on strategies of sustainability. These strategies were implemented in the shaping of the building in both form and function.

The 50,000 square foot facility, located adjacent to Interstate 40 in Cookeville, is responsible for leadership and management of 14 county health departments: Cannon, Clay, Cumberland, DeKalb, Fentress, Jackson, Macon, Overton, Pickett, Putnam, Smith, Van Buren, Warren and White. Health services offered include immunizations, well child/EPSDT screenings, WIC and nutrition, children's special services, breast and cervical cancer screening, family planning, HIV counseling and testing, sexually transmitted disease testing and treatment, tuberculosis testing and treatment and communicable disease control.
